HBO Documentary Films: CLĺNICA DE MIGRANTES

HBO Documentary Films: CLĺNICA DE MIGRANTES

Overview: Underserved and ignored, undocumented immigrants with medical issues often end up in emergency rooms for care, a costly last resort in which patients can be charged thousands of dollars for little more than an aspirin. Filmmaker Maxim Pozdorovkin (HBO’s PUSSY RIOT: A PUNK PRAYER) shines a well-deserved light on Puentes de Salud, a health-care clinic in South Philadelphia, serves a population that all-too-easily slips through the cracks. At the facility, health volunteers address this problem by serving uninsured Latino immigrants who have nowhere else to turn and are increasingly reluctant to seek care in the current...

HBO Documentary Films: BRILLO BOX 3¢ OFF

HBO Documentary Films: BRILLO BOX 3¢ OFF

Overview: In 1969, Lisanne Skyler’s parents bought an Andy Warhol “Brillo Box (3¢ Off)” sculpture for $1,000. An exact replica of a shipping carton for Brillo soap pads, Warhol’s Brillo Boxes were at first dismissed by the art world. But 40 years later, with Warhol’s reputation as a contemporary-art visionary long secured, the same piece sold for more than $3 million at a record-breaking Christie’s auction. Blending a humorous family narrative with Pop Art history, and debuting the week of Warhol’s 89th birthday, this documentary makes its way from a New York family’s living room to the contemporary global art market,...

Overview: “Every morning before having breakfast, I pick up my newspaper, get the obituary section, and see if I’m listed,” says comedy legend Carl Reiner. “If I’m not, I’ll have my breakfast.” The 95-year-old wonders why some of his friends died years ago, while others are still thriving, asking, “Was it luck, genes, modern medicine or are we doing something right?” In this heartwarming documentary, host Carl Reiner tracks down such celebrated nonagenarians and centenarians as Mel Brooks, 90, Dick Van Dyke, 91, Kirk Douglas, 100, Norman Lear, 94, and Betty White, 95, who show that the later years can truly be the happiest...
